I have been on twitter for way too long. (@genedavid) Since November 2008.
I really love it.
I love the brevity. I love the ability to create conversations with friends all over the world. I love the access to information. I love the friends I have made. (Yes, I have made real life friends on twitter with whom I have spent time with in their meat suit form, not just digital form.)
My hackles always rise (whatever hackles are) when people say, “Twitter is dumb. I don’t want to know when you are at Starbucks and I don’t want to see pictures of your lunch.”
To me that feels like complaining about email because it is impersonal.
Twitter has made my life better!
